Your Burning Nursery Design Questions

Designing a nursery from start to finish can be incredibly fun, but it can also be extremely stressful, scary and overwhelming, especially if you’re a first-time parent. That’s part of why we do what we do—we want our design clients to feel at ease and excited about their nurseries, and we want to help them enjoy the whole process. We get a lot of emails from people across the nation asking for help and advice for their nurseries, but since we’re based in Southern California, it’s hard for us to get our services to those in other states. However, we have some exciting news—that’s about to change, and we’re looking for a little help!

    I’m overwhelmed by all the great choices and design directions that I could go with my baby’s nursery. I find that I like many different styles. How do I mix them so that it appears cohesive and intentional. How do I choose the right rug, chair fabric, window treatments and furniture? I’d like to be able to switch up the bedding and accessories from time to time and would like the big pieces to work with just about anything.

    For me, it was really tough figuring out what companies to even consider when trying to find bedding and gear since I didn’t know any of the baby brands! And on top of that, I had no idea what the price points were so google searches might turn out awesome companies but ones which were too pricey. Also, I had heard of retailers like Babies ‘R Us but were unfamiliar with some of the other big name online retailers, like or in the beginning. It would have been nice to know what the popular retailers and brands were ahead of time somehow! It probably would have made my selection process a lot smoother.

    The main question I have for baby #2 is how to design a nursery WITHOUT a dresser or changing table. I always changed my daughter on a changing pad on the floor, and both kids have more than enough closet space in their rooms. I would rather not find another dresser and anchor it into the wall if I can design a nice space without one…but I haven’t seen any inspiration for that! I need something to put a sound machine, humidifier, and likely an ok-to-wake clock eventually, but don’t know where to start!
